According to a Fandango survey, posted on Deadline, Wonder Woman is a primary draw for viewers heading out to see "BvS." So, probably to capitalize on that interest and build more buzz for the "Wonder Woman" solo film coming next year, Warner Bros. just gave Entertainment Weekly a first-look photo at Diana with her warrior trainers on the Amazon island of Themyscira.
Here is Diana with her mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) (shown below, third from left), and Diana's two military aunts — General Antiope (Robin Wright) (far right), and Antiope's lieutenant, Menalippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli) (far left):
Diana is the only child on an island with no men, so she's the special kid they all work to raise together. However, as EW noted, that doesn't mean they all agree on her future. Connie Nielsen's Hippolyta wants to shelter her daughter from the outside world, but Robin Wright's fight trainer Antiope wants to prepare her niece for that outside world.
Wonder Woman's origin story, set long before the events of "BvS," is scheduled to hit theaters on June 23, 2017.
